And a very diverse three-fer at that. First up is a quick check in with Don Walker, show owner and director of NAHBS. The 15th edition of the artisan builder’s show is only two weeks away. Opening on The Ides of March at the Sacramento Convention Center, the event will showcase magnificent hand built bikes, offer up some great seminar opportunities, and give attendees a chance to get up close and personal with a favorite builder. Then it’s clear across the country to Philadelphia to speak with Kyle Bryant. Diagnosed with a rare and pretty much fatal disease – Friedrich’s Ataxia – Kyle decided to take life by the wheels – 3 of them to...

My first guest, Susie Marcks, is the media voice of Strider Bikes. When the company was founded in 2007, the founder, Ryan McFarland, realized that his child needed and wanted to learn to ride. As with many children, training wheels were not working – and, Strider was born. Today, the company has arguably become that “first bike” for thousands of kids from toddler through the 20″ BMX machine. Then, there are the Strider Cup races, the World Championship, the partnerships, the philanthropy, and so much more. Then, I have conversation with Mass Bike’s Richard Fries, a frequent guest on the show. While Richard...

Connie Carpenter-Phinney has been a champion since she was 14, and today as the wife of Davis Phinney, the mother of BMC’s Taylor Phinney, and the mother of a world class Nordic skiing daughter, she relishes the quirky, fun, and fascinating lifestyle that they have developed over the past decades. Connie and I talk about a variety of topics including Parkinson’s disease (Davis was diagnosed at the young age of 40) and the Sufferlandria competition that is raising money for the Davis Phinney Foundation. We get in to a bit of women’s racing history and speculation about how and why it has changed – especially n light of today’s great competitors. And, of course we discuss...

So, probably one of the best ways to forget the winter doldrums is to laugh – at it, about it, or just find some funny stuff. And, this week we did indeed find humor. Back at the beginning of the month, we spoke with commentator and journalist Dan Wuori. During our conversation, Dan mentioned that he had participated in the forward of a new book by the “fat cyclist” and I said… “Who’s that?” Well, this evening, we get to talk with the “fat cyclist hisself”… Elden Nelson isn’t fat and he IS a cyclist. In fact, he’s...
